We have been hearing a lot about this bill over the past few months. People crying that it is too strict and will drive us all into bankruptcy, people crying that it is too lax and will drive us all into extinction. Yikes!
Like it or not, this bill was passed by the House Energy and Commerce Committee on May 21, so it has a good chance of going on to become a law.
So what does it say? Kate Sheppard over at Grist.org was kind enough to read the bill and distill it down to a brief summary incase you don’t have time to do so yourself. Take a few minutes to read it so you can yell at the pundits of your choice on tv with authority.
